Château Léoville Poyferré Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Helped by a 98 point Parker rating for its 2003, Léoville-Poyferré is finallygetting the credit it deserves. Didier Cuvelier calls 2007 a great restaurantvintage - like 1999 but better made - but this feels like excessive modesty fora wine of this class. Intensely concentrated, minerally and stylish, it isclearly one of the wines of the vintage. A serious, fragrant nose leads on to aprecise, complex palate with finely tuned, supple tannins, generous blackberryand kirsch fruit and mocha and leather hints. This is another great successfrom the most underrated member of the Léoville clan.

Chateau Leoville Poyferre:

In the reign of Louis XIII, in 1638, a certain Jean de Moytié, Counsellor of the Bordeaux parliament and a noble bourgeois of the town, owned a beautifully sloped gravelly vineyard near the River. This place, as was the tradition, was named after its owner and thus became the “Mont-Moytié.” Historically, the production of Mont-Moytié was among the first Médoc wines, along with the “Château de Margaux”, the “Tour de Saint-Lambert” or the “Château de La Fitte” in Pauillac and the “Château de Calon”, in Saint-Estèphe, which were all established before the period of civil war known as La Fronde (1648-1653.) These were the first estates to appear in the Médoc parishes, which were later to become commune appellations. Read less

Smoky oak, clay soil tones, smoked chili, sweet touch of caramel, blackberry coulis – velvet texture in the mouth, seductive soft tannins, mid-palate turns a bit loose and blowsy but quite texturally expansive, tightens up on the finish, a touch short but quite enjoyable already (89-90)

WS 90pts. - IWC 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: Offers subtle aromas of smoky wood, fresh herbs and dark fruits. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and soft, silky tannins. Very well-crafted and polished for the vintage. Much better than from barrel. Best after 2012. According to the Wine Advocate: Grapy, richly fruity, medium-bodied flavors of cocoa, white chocolate, spicy herbs, and black currants jump from the glass of this deliciously evolved, complex wine. It is a soft, easy-going St.-Julien to consume over the next 8-10 years.
